badminton ah
1950s is badminton...and this guy won the ALL England at the time , the premier badminton tournament in the world and thus is considered like the World Champion. But You also can say your earlier deleted answer was right, if not All England then Thomas Cup

But who was our 1990 World Champion in what sport?

Sorry but what are we using for historical basis?

can we trust the “historians” of their times?

look at the vile misinformation and propaganda getting spewed everywhere in modern times?

can we be sure it wasn’t the case in the past?

And all the sources from where?
Verified by photographs and videos?
Hell, even photos and videos can be easily edited nowadays.
Even archaeological evidences can be doctored too.

Sources from humans? With an agenda most likely during their times?
really can trust?
